Our Mission Statement
The central theme of Dallas Baptist University's mission statement is to train students to be servant leaders in their communities. The University Writing Center staff recognizes the correlation between clear effective communication and strong leadership. Therefore, it is the Writing Center's purpose to offer student support in communication skills at any level and any discipline through consultation with qualified and trained writing consultants in a special facility set aside for this purpose. In this manner, students' leadership abilities can be enhanced with strong communication skills. It is also the purpose of the Writing Center to offer strong support to the faculty of Dallas Baptist University in their efforts to stress to their students the importance of a strong writing ability for a strong leadership profile.
Writing Across the Curriculum
The Writing Center staff adheres to the concept of "Writing Across the Curriculum." Learning to write effectively means learning to think critically and to apply all knowledge in a clear and precise manner to one's job, home, community, and world view. Therefore, writing can be used as a tool of learning in any discipline.
